. why is light versus dark still an issue? maybe the broader america doesn't understand lighter skinned black people were treated better because they were seen more proximate to the dominant white culture, given better privileges in slavery because they were produced by unions between white men and black women. there is a huge tension in the broader society. lighter skinned blacks are seen tore liked by whites. negro dialect, what does that mean? jesse jackson is one of the most eloquent men we know, so is al sharpton. they all ran for president of the united states of america. joe biden made the same comments. mr. obama needs to step up to the bully pulpit and not be loathe to deal with the issue of race and say this is a teachable moment. yes, we can can accept the apology of mr. reid. let's deal with light skinned versus dark skinned and teach america about some of these more vicious issues. otherwise they do look like hypocrites in my book. >> i heard so many people over the weekend say they were surprised by this but you cover the election, as did i. there were people who did not u

on america. one year later, major garrett has a look back at the president's foreign policy. >> the president's biggest foreign policy hoop came at the end of his first year, sending 30,000 additional troops to afghanistan to combat a tenacious taliban. >> i'm convinced that our security is at stake in afghanistan and pakistan. >> when mr. obama accepted his noble peace prize he surprised some by defending his expanded afghan war as crucial to winning a post 9/11 peace. republicans backed this decision but not what came with it. >> his simultaneous announcement of his desire for an early commencement of withdrawal of american forces sent a very bad signal. >> signals, mr. obama has tried to send new ones as with his speech to the muslim world in cairo. at big summits the president acknowledged what he called u.s. missteps in foreign policy, economics and the environment. >> it is not just the apologies that make a difference, it is the overall weakness and decline in defending american interests. >> the white house and its allies call it practicallal honesty. >> he has shown a sincetivity to
, reverend sharpton, have you a majority leader, one of the most powerful people in america, going around using the term "negro dialect?" >> it's a concern, but whether or not it is enough to ask him to step aside given his record and the fact that he was saying why he felt his candidate can win. i might add, joe, we did not bring up trent lot, the republicans did. the republican chairman said we were raising a double standard. we did not use on senator reid what we used on senator lott. we didn't bring up lott. i don't know anyone who would have made that outrageous comparison. >> reverend, did you read what harry reid's reaction to trent lott's comments were? not to get too deep in the weeds here, but it doesn't help back up the point that there really can't be a parallel here. because obviously trent lott made the comments about strom thurmond that led to his demise and harry reid had a reaction to those comments and i'd like if we could put them up on the screen. he basically said he wouldn't do something like that, and that's how you play. in 2000, then senator-obama suggested -- >>

anything but to help protect america. >> by the way, this statement by brennaman is the very way this president leads. a number of times he has taken responsibility, said he is sorry, and moved on. and we've been often jarred by that. >> ironically, he will actually gain more political stature doing that, than by blaming george w. bush. it doesn't make a lot of sense, but at this point, when the white house blames george w. bush for anything, even if they have a good argument it makes them look small when they say, hey, the buck stops with me. doesn't it make the president seem more confident. it makes him seem like more of a leader. >> two quick things about that, joe. one a lot of people are sick about all of the references to the bush administration. it's over. it was a year ago. move on. that's in the rear view mirror. i was reminded about my conversation with a top-ranking national security official and it gets to the volume of threats. >> oh, yeah. >> i mean, just the sheer volume of threats that these people have to handle, administer and make decisions on each and every d
